Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: They key to successfully absorbing the movie may be in not trying to overthink what's on screen.
Rotten: Whatever your age, even if life is an ocean made up of many drops, you may resolve that life is too short for this errant nonsense.
Fresh: Despite the fact that ot sometimes looks like $102 million celebrity dress up party where Tom Hanks got a really good bulk deal on latex noses Cloud Atlas sometimes strikes moments of sheer beauty.
Fresh: An epic, genre-hopping, unique adventure that effectively shoe-horns six films into one...Cloud Atlas achieves that rarest of all things for a film this big: it is engaging and consistently entertaining as well as providing brain food.
Surprise at end credits
A visually stunning experience. Don't over think this movie but do keep track of the characters because during the credits they show you who played multiple characters (it's surprising).
Reviving and Uplifting
Aftering reviewing the score along while reading the book, I was very anxious and curious as to how the movie will play out. I had then found myself in the story once more. However instead of looking at the story in a mirror effect, the movie itself played out the stories and were carefully blended into one. Having to have read the book I had an understanding of what I was about to witness but that wasn't the case as I was amazed as to how the movie was so beautifully done. The movie itself gave me more of an understanding as to how they are all connected. Having that said, myself and so many others eagerly await the release of Cloud Atlas to witness again.
